Next month we will celebrate that 4th memorial anniversary with a memorial mass, a tradition observed by the Catholic Church and something we arranged would be done for the first 5 years after his death.. But quite honestly, not a tradition I will carry on after next year (and one I truly wish I had not begun).. I don't want to remember the day he died, or for that matter the months leading up to his death.
No, instead as of today, it is today that I will remember and all the days, months and years that came after his birth...I need to remember his life - all the happy wonderful times - those 13,172 days that he was with us - making us smile, making memories and being part of our family.... That is the tradition that I vow to celebrate & memorialize in the years to come... So Happy 40th Birthday in Heaven in Bobby.. we love and miss you very much and and this "Is in Memory of You"...
